Publisher's Summary

Every year Jewish families gather to light the Hanukkah candles, eat potato latkes, exchange presents and spin the dreidel as they celebrate Hanukkah, the Festival of lights.

Hanukkah in English means dedication. It celebrates the re-dedication of the temple by Judah and the Maccabee's after it was recaptured from the Greeks in 164 B.C. The Hanukkah story is the story of a brave people fighting for religious freedom and the miracle of lights burning proudly for eight long days.

The Hanukkah story honors the heroes and heroines throughout Jewish history who have fought using both might and wisdom to overcome their foes. One of these heroes is Judah the Maccabee.

    Story
    "Music too loud"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was difficult to hear, the background music was so loud I had a difficult time hearing the reader


    Would you recommend Judah, the Maccabee to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, if it were reread without the loud music


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator was fine


    Do you think Judah, the Maccabee needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I can't say, because I really was so disappointed and distracted.


    Any additional comments?

    I listened to it several times to try to hear it. Very poor presentation!

    "Very short version of the story..."

    It was entertaining, but there is so much more AWESOME parts of the story of the Maccabees! I didn't care for the echo effect that they used everytime Judah spoke either. It was very good for $1.35 though, and gives the listener enough information to appreciate the acts of the brave people that took a stand for God, led by the Maccabees.
